Donald Trump vs Marco Rubio for US president 2016: Paul Singer ready to back GOP hopefull Rubio
ORANGE CITY, Iowa â€” Marco Rubio is working hard and has started gaining ground in the Republican primaries. His impressive performance during the third GOP debate on CNBC seems to have given him much needed exposure and now more people are talking about him as serious contender for being the Republican presidential candidate. Though it is still a long way to go, he has been working hard on the basics and has now started getting support from influential Republican backers and funders.
The latest name that has come forward to publicly back him is none other than Paul Singer, an influential and respected donor.
Paul Singerâ€™s backing means a lot not just to Rubio, but any other candidate too. Paul Elliott Singer is an American hedge fund manager, investor, philanthropist, and political activist. He is the founder and CEO of hedge fund Elliott Management Corporation, a political activist and activist investor besides being a prominent New York based philanthropist.
This means that he is now among the top three Republicans who are struggling to win the GOP support. The endorsement was reportedly confirmed by an aide to the Rubio campaign. There are several reasons why his support means a lot for Rubio. A report says, â€œIn Singer, Rubio has captured the endorsement of one of the most influential money players in the GOP â€” not only because of the large sums Singer personally donates but also because he has helped organize a network of like-minded wealthy contributors that is a significant power center within the partyâ€.
Rubio was a standout debater during the third Republican primary debate. While talking to media he said, â€œWhen people donate to us, theyâ€™re buying into our agenda and Iâ€™m glad that he hasâ€¦Itâ€™ll help us with resourcesâ€¦resources alone are not enoughâ€¦I love to hear that people are saying, â€˜This might be the guyâ€¦The last time I heard that, I got married.â€
